Next SPLOST Debate

The next SPLOST debate is scheduled to take place at the Board of Commissioners public meeting room at 100 Cherokee Street right off the Square in Marietta on Wednesday, October 29th. It will start at 7 pm and is being sponsored by the League of Women Voters. To that end, we can’t emphasize enough how important it is that our side be there in force, wearing NO SPLOST t-shirts, and waving signs. (Please see contact information below to get your signs and t-shirts.) If we can deliver a good performance at that event, it will be a huge shot in the arm to our campaign, especially as we head into the final stretch. It will give us, what they say in political parlance, the “Big Mo”. So please clear your calendars and plan to attend, and show up early. Our opponents may, out of desperation, use the tactic they used during the Braves Stadium fight, and stack the room with paid Chamber staffers long before the start of the debate. Don’t let them get away with it! Two can play that game. Another tactic we used to good affect at the first debate is that our side was armed with great questions, which kept our opponent on the defensive and allowed us to play more offense. As in football, the more time you have on the clock with the ball in your possession, you are going to win. It’s that simple. To get questions you would like to ask, go to the FAQ tab.

Flyer & Lawn Sign Distribution

With the beautiful fall weather we enjoy in this part of the country between now and election day, now is a perfect time to go door-to-door distributing our flyers in your sub-division or neighborhood, while getting that much recommended exercise. If 100 volunteers distribute just 100 flyers, we will be reaching out to between 15 and 20,000 voters. This activity alone can make the difference between victory or defeat. Click here to print out the flyer. There are four flyers per page, so you only need to print out 25 to get 100 flyers.

In addition, there are a number of well attended festivals and fairs in Cobb County in the next two weeks, which represents an ideal opportunity to pass out our flyers. If you would like to join with others in this activity, please contact Mr. Boyd Parks, who has graciously volunteered to coordinate that activity. He can be reached at 770-975-3303, or you can e-mail him at

We are also planning some sign waving events at busy intersections for the next two weeks leading up to election day. If you’d take part in that activity, contact our sign waving coordinator, Jerry Palmer at 770-778-2492, or e-mail him at

And last but not least, if you need signs and t-shirts, Dr. Bill Hudson is our go to guy for that. He can be reached at 678-525-3878 or e-mail him at
